In an effort to jazz up the Innova range in the country, Toyota has introduced the new Innova Touring Sport at Rs 17.79 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The fully loaded range topping Sport version gets all the features from the regular Crysta’s top spec ZX variant. Changes are limited to visual upgrades, while the MPV continues to be powered by existing engine options. Based on Toyota Venturer, which is a popular seller in Indonesia, the new Innova Touring Sport is expected to generate a similarly positive response in the country.
To distinguish it from a regular version, Toyota has added sporty body cladding on the wheel arches, bumpers as well as the side skirts. As seen in the Venturer, the new Touring Sport from Toyota also gets a chrome element on the ORVMs as well the grille which is flanked by smoked headlamps. Although the sides appear to be similar to the existing model, for freshness, it now sits on 205/65 R16 tyres wrapped around blackened alloys that give it a sportier stance.
Regarding the interiors, the new Innova Touring Sport gets premium leather upholstery along with a touchscreen infotainment system and a TFT multi-information display. In addition to few sporty bits, the new variant also gets a unique Touring Sport badge and embossed floor mats.
Mechanically, it continues to be offered in petrol as well as a diesel derivative. The petrol version gets a 2.7-litre engine which puts out 164bhp of power and 245Nm of torque while the diesel automatic is powered by a 2.8-litre engine producing 172bhp of power and 360Nm of torque. Finally, the diesel manual variant is powered by a 2.4-litre unit producing 148bhp/343Nm and this is mated to a five-speed manual.
This latest addition to the Innova line will further widen options for customers who have always been longing for more features from the Japanese automaker. Moreover, the new model is expected to further boost overall sales for the market leader in its segment in India.
